Triple the Fun

This last week was really great. I really love Elder Atkin he is the best. We were able to teach a lot this week and got a few new investigators. Now we just have to get them progressing towards baptism. We had a really good lesson with one of our investigators, Sister Dawson. She is really old and has been taught by the missionaries for a long time. She doesn't really have a testimony that Joseph Smith was a prophet though, so we told that the only way to know is if you read the the Book of Mormon on her own and pray specifically to know if he was really a prophet and if the Book of Mormon is the word of God. We have been reading with her every couple of days and this last time after we finished reading she said the prayer and said that she is leaning towards it being true. I am excited to see her taking steps in the right direction. 
Also this week we set a goal to get three new investigators which is triple what we got last week. The first one we found was when we were tracting and Stephanie answered the door she was baptized mormon when she was 8, but is now a born again Christian. She doesn't remember very much about what we believe and has a few questions. The second one we ran into while we were headed to an appointment his name is Gus (26)and he just went sober and said he really wants to turn his life around we taught him about our beliefs and how the Gospel of Jesus Christ can really help him in his life. The last one few found at the last house went went to sunday night. His name is Mike and he had a room mate who was mormon and really wanted to learn about what we believe. We really worked hard to reach our goal and the Lord blessed us with our last investigator at the very last possible moment. I am so happy to be a missionary and I feel really blessed. I love all of you and its been great hearing from everyone.
